What is reconstructive plastic surgery?

Reconstructive plastic surgery is done to correct facial and body abnormalities caused by birth defects, injury, disease, or aging.

Usually, the goal of reconstructive plastic surgery is to improve body function. However, reconstructive plastic surgery may also be done to create a more normal appearance and improve self-esteem (this may also be called cosmetic surgery). Abnormal structures of the body may result from:

  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Congenital (present at birth) defects
  • Disease
  • Tumors
